Parenting teens: Boundaries
Why Teens Need a Strict Parent
We hear a kid whining in the toy aisle and the mom caves, handing him the toy. The nightly news shows the faces of teens who committed a crime and now have a record. You have to teach and control your children! Instinctively, we all know that being a strict parent should result in a child who is successful and well-adjusted. In practice, though, it is much more difficult. Good parents want their children to be happy, but to be a great parent one has to recognize that sometimes long-term happiness means short -erm unhappiness.

Setting boundaries for teenagers
Every family should have a list of rules for all to follow, from parents on down. By making your house rules clear to your preteen, you're emphasizing what's important both at home and everywhere else. You can post your house rules on the refrigerator or a family community cork board. Or, write the house's rules up as a contract for your tween to sign.
While the teenage years can at times be stormy and emotional, your kids need to know that you will always be there and what you expect from them. Despite what teens might say, most just want you to be their 'rock' …. Teens also need to have enough space to make decisions and take responsibility for their actions. It's part of being a teenager to push against the boundaries, to test the rules. However, if there are no boundaries and no rules then they have no guide to know when to stop, when it is enough, or even to understand that what they are doing is simply wrong.
